Local option to remove waves
Ability in local options menu to remove waves. Not a map option which would affect other players, just a local setting. Would help players see those bits of land close to the water, and probably help visibility in ropers with water-drops. I raise my maps floor up a bit because I hate not being able to see the floor, the low plops and the mines hidden behind the waves.
What AndrewTaylor said.
Hacks to do this are generally considered cheating, as if one player has waves obscuring part of the landscape and others do not, the player that does is at an advantage. I suppose if all players have that option available it's less of a problem, but schemes sould be able to override it and old schemes should assume that setting to avoid adversely affecting existing play-styles.
